Ukraine will defeat Russia already if the AFU without unnecessary losses comes to the line, which was before February 24.
This was stated by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in his interview on the third anniversary of his inauguration.
"Without any unnecessary losses to come out on the line that was before February 24 is a victory. We broke the back of one of the largest armies in the world. They will not get back on their feet in the next few years. Let's not forget that our military also wants to live. It's important to me that we understand the value of every step. Getting to that line of demarcation, the temporary line of demarcation, that would be a victory. It will be an indication that they have not captured us," he said.
According to the president, after that, Ukraine will move on to the second part.
"I would like this country to have enough intelligence so that the second part we will talk at the negotiating table," Zelensky added.
